A nuclear plant in jersey is in alert due to high flooding. They say it should be fine and all, but ya know...

That sounds like fun.

MTA's twitter account is confirming that the east river subway crossings are flooded... apparently power on the west side is starting to flicker... whole blocks in Rockaway have gone up in flames because the flooding is too bad for the FDNY to put it out... and somewhere out there, somebody at UCF was denied a campaign stump speech.

On that, I'm going to bed.

Don't you worry though, Barack has the ability to put those fires out with the snap of his fingers right as they start!

Get over yourself.

Are there any meteorologists or scientists we can prosecute for this?

So the rain is still going on and off, wind gusts aren't happening as often (though there are still strong ones into tomorrow) but the tides are going to increase overnight in the coastal areas.

Remind me to never get a house by the water!

Bad update: Backup generator died at NYU Hospital, its being evacuated.

Apparently, things are very bad on Staten Island. There are reports of water up to attics and rescues by boat. There is also a report of a fire on Coney Island.

I think the subway is always down, Cobbler. You're thinking of streetcars

My basement in Toronto has an inch of water in it right now. Lovely.

Better yet we are house hunting and supposed to see a house that backs onto a river tomorrow.

Yeah, staten island and manhattan, long island all surrounded by water, the rising tides and storm surge coming in from all sides. They may have to discuss how to prevent this in the future. Levees? Need to prepare for the possibility a cat 2 or cat 3 could hit in the future. Not out of the realm of possibility.
